Once you have experienced the magic of working with wax, you will discover infinite ways of expression. During this continuing workshop, we will have time to play with the following techniques:
Putting photo image transfers on encaustic surfaces using a toner based photocopy; You will learn how to turn it into a decal while embedding it into the wax.
Cutting your own stencils to make your own designs and patterns. We will use these to create a bas-relief surface design of colors.
Using oil pastels for depth and mark-making.
And of course, following your own art making experiments and discoveries!
Along with using small boards for learning techniques, I will provide larger cradled panels for a final piece.
I recommend taking my Beginning Encaustic workshop as a prerequisite to this more advanced one.
